What are the Steps to Renovate a House?
Renovating a house is both the best way to get everything just as you want it and also to increase the value of your investment. Depending on the jobs being undertaken, a renovation can be a small and short project or a huge, longer term one. But there are basic steps to renovate a house that remain the same.
All renovations start with an assessment of the current condition of the house. This helps to establish if there are any problems such as damp, deteriorations, leaks or other types of damage. Sometimes a measured survey is used to draw out the existing building and help with later planning permission if needed.
Next is checking out legal areas and also any grants or tax concessions you might get for doing the work. Then it is things like planning permission and building regulations while planning the project. Not all projects will need planning permission but building regulations always apply.
Once all the issues have been resolved, the work can start. It will often start with ensuring that the property is weatherproof for the duration of work then internal work can start. Once structural changes and work have finished, jobs such as plastering walls and decorating can then take place. Flooring can then be paid, and you are ready to move in!
